Halloween is every day, right?

This past weekend, I went to see my friends Paul and Beckett in Fremont, largely so that Paul and I could make some beautiful music together. (Paul does a lot of the chording for my songs, because Paul is wonderful that way. I love Paul.) While I was hanging out with Beckett, she showed me some of the gorgeous carved foam pumpkins she's been working on. These things are truly amazing. Don't believe me? Check her Etsy store:

artbeco.etsy.com

They're beautiful, they're ornate, they're sturdy, and they're all basically unique, because even when she uses the same pattern on two pumpkins, they'll come out slightly different. Best of all, they're the sort of thing that can survive for years and years, making your Halloween decorations something special and more fun than one more generic jack-o-lantern. She's still taking orders for this season, and I hugely recommend giving her Etsy shop a look. Not just for pumpkins—she has lots of other kick-ass stuff for sale—but I'm a simple girl, I know what I like, and what I like is pumpkins.

Halloween is coming fast!
